Your reaction to a situation, has the power…to change the situation itself.
Every organization starts with a bold idea. Ideas prevail when we have the conviction to proceed and work to execute well. This and more is true for each of you when you think about adding to your centers or growing your businesses. But we must be different, special and find our unique niche. In the room, we’ve talked about change, about staying relevant, about investing. But how will you continue to be the best and how will you continue to DIFFERENTIATE yourself from those who simply want to emulate your achievements?
